Baby Belly

I realized it's been 10 weeks since I posted a belly picture! Well, let me say, things have changed dramatically. My belly has taken on that oblong watermelon shape, and However, I don't need to hear people tell me that. I am aware of it. I promise. The last picture I have is from about 3 weeks ago. I am now 35 weeks and 3 days pregnant.
Here I am...

I will get John to take a more recent picture sometime this week. I tried to do it myself in the mirror, but it didn't work out. BTW, I do have feet. They just always seem to get cut off in these pictures :)

Oh! I discovered something new about Tuba today. We have noticed he's been eating the pecans from our pecan trees, and we were worried he was eating the shells and all. I was outside with him today, and he doesn't eat the shells! He very patiently cracks the nut and only eats the meat. Pretty talented I think!

Our Newest Addition

We finally did it.

We got a dog.

He is a rescue from a family who just didn't have enough room or time to devote to him. They were very grateful to us for taking him in. We are very happy to have him! His name from his previous family is Tuba. Tuba. We thought it was a very odd name, but somehow it has grown on us. We had thought about changing it, but we kept it. I call him Scuba Diver :)

Tuba is an 8 month old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. He's very pretty! He has had some obedience training, and we've been pretty impressed with him so far. He's great with kids, but a little shy of men. He's been good with my elderly Kramer kitty so far. When Kramer hisses, Tuba goes to hide in his kennel :) Although today he stood his ground until I dragged him away!

Anyway, he's been a fun addition so far. AK loves him...or she loves to order him around at least :)

Welcome home Tuba!

Oh, I forgot to mention, Tuba loves to chew...he especially likes to de-stuff his stuffy toys. We have gotten rid of all of them, so he moved onto this...

We gotta work on that!
